I'm off now until January 2nd so Friday I got a whole bunch of blog posts written up for future use, and Saturday I took Marianna to my mum's for the day. We watched Rainbow for hours (as usual) and encouraged Marianna in her weird one knee / one foot crawl-shuffle.

☆ READING: Life in the Victorian Asylum: The World of 19th Century Mental Health Care by Mark Stevens. The first half is set out like a pre-admission brochure, explaining what the prospective patient could expect from their time at the asylum, which had a much more immediate impact than most history books. It was quite eye opening really, to see the aims of the asylum, and to have a few myths debunked about the public vs. private asylum.
☆ WRITING: An Introduction to the Yowie. I read Paul Cropper and Tony Healy's book on the Australian Bigfoot and just had to blog about it.
☆ WATCHING: Tales of the Unexpected. Sky Arts have them all on catch up so, even though I've seen most of them already, I'm working my way through them. My favourite episode is still S3:EP1 The Flypaper which does more to highlight 'stranger danger' than any public service announcement could ever hope to.
☆ LISTENING: The hum of the scanner. This week's offering is a June 1979 issue of My Guy magazine.
☆ WEARING: The Good Night Anti-Snoring Ring. If you fancy winning one for yourself, check out my giveaway.
☆ EATING: Pringles. Once you pop...
☆ FEELING: Excited.
